My husband and I had an absolute blast at this resort. Everyone was so nice and the staff was great! Our most favorite bartenders were Henry and Jose. Those two were just a delight and so friendly. They made great conversation and just an absolute joy to be around! We also went on a fishing trip and caught a Tuna,...

We just returned from spending a week in this beautiful tropical resort. We upgraded to preferred club before we arrived and requested a bungalow close to restaurants and the beach due to my limited walking ability. We indeed were given a great location (#112) and it was very nice however there were so many steps with no rails to hold...

This resort was absolutely beautiful! Service was great! And the food was amzing! I will definitely be visiting a secrets resort soon! The only bad thing I can think of is the property has steep hills, but they have carts that pick you up.

We had a wonderful week at Secrets Papagayo (January 24st to 28th) in spite of hitting a small snag at the beginning. Since we had both just come off an extremely exhausting stretch at home, we wanted this vacation to be focused on vegging out in total peace and tranquility. To help ensure that we had upgrade to Preferred Club...

This is a stunning property! We were blown away by the beauty of the grounds and the wildlife at Secrets Papagayo. The views from this property will take your breath away. You must do the sunset hike to the viewpoint! If the views aren't enough, the wildlife is a pretty cool add on! From the lizards walking across the road...
